Queens condo workers reap $119K in prevailing wage case

Property management company's settlement with city comptroller

Posted 4/19/24

A property management company must pay $119,000 in wages and interest to six workers at a condominium in Queens because it failed to pay them prevailing wages for more than two years, according to a settlement announced Thursday by the city comptroller.

The owner of the Long Island City condo, 11-51 47th Real LLC, received a partial tax break for the 53-unit building under the city’s prevailing wage laws. Despite this, Choice NY Property Management, which was contracted to provide maintenance and concierge services for the building, did not provide the workers with supplemental benefits such as health insurance and pension contributions required under the prevailing wage law between October 2017 and December 2019. It also did not pay the workers the supplemental benefit rate in lieu of providing the benefits.
